London Double Header

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The London Double Header began in 2004 and opens the season of the English Premiership (currently sponsored as the Aviva Premiership), the top rugby union league in England.

Two games are played consecutively at Twickenham, usually involving the 'big four' London based teams of the Premiership, Harlequins, London Irish, Wasps (London Wasps until the 2014–15 season) and Saracens. Harlequins were relegated from the premiership at the end of the 2004–05 season and thus for the 2005–06 season Leeds Tykes (now known as Yorkshire Carnegie) were included instead. The matches form part of the regular season fixtures, with one team nominated as the home side for each match.

At other times of year Twickenham is also used for regular season London fixtures, such as the Big Game at Christmas time and the Premiership Final in late May.
